If the Bible was made by God, why isn't it infinitely awesome and infinitely inspiring?

Where is his infinite literature skills? He invented writing, so how come he didn't make the bible so?

Isn't God infinitely awesome and benevolent?

I personally find it a boring read.

That could be deemed disgraceful for a God's writing...

Unless God possessed some prophets (doesn't sound like him) he didn't write the Bible. So it should be deemed disgraceful for a human's writing nearly 2000 years ago.

I am talking about Gods.

I already know that humans writ the bible, because child-murder can't be written by a perfect being.

It is to those who believe. And its obviously not to unbelievers, because they have rejected him. Why would they be inspired by something the dont believe in at all?

I'm just saying that the bible is too low in literacy and inspiration when it is made by a perfect, infinite being.

And also, why would it be inspiring when there are verses like leviticus 20:9?

It is just as "The Phantom" stated, the bible is inspirational to whomever believes in it.

What you fail to realize sir, is that anyone can draw inspiration from anything if they so choose, its the power of faith.

if you think its to low in literacy, thats your opinion because millions of others say otherwise.

And also, like I said, anyone can draw inspiration from anything, leviticus 20:9 to you isn't all that inspiring, but I could easily say it makes me want to love my mother and father that much more.

Justice doesn't exist outside of one's own mind because everyone has their own perception of right and wrong. You can choose to accept god and therefor obtain infinate faith and insipration, or reject him and sit on the oter side of debates questioning who he is because you lack him.

You ever realize that even though atheists say god doesn't exist, they sure do think about him a lot, and anything that can be acknowledged exists...that's all I'm saying...

Try again sir...

Ask yourself this question, Are instructions boring? Mostly yes, right? Just like instructions, the BIBLE is actually a set of acronyms i think, and to me it reads, Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. So basically the bible is a set of instructions on what we should do to go to heaven and not receive 2nd death, which is throwing that person into the lake of fire. It's up to you on how you want to interpret the acronyms of the bible, but I think this will be how I define it.

What about Leviticus 20:9? It seems legit to me ;) And why is this your Ace in the hole when there's Genesis 19:30-38? You'll have fun with that one.

The Bible was made by God, infinitely awesome and infinitely inspiring !

He inspired those who write the Bible and create us and all around us what is awesome but so far we don t read it from beginning to the end from our life beginning starting to appreciate the light of sun for example and continuing with showing our love because love is all around us. Sooner or later we will face situations in our life what appear in the Bible .Reading the Bible is falling in love discovering our self what we should not be or must be

God didn't write the Bible. There are 40 different authors, "over a period of 1500 years."

It means man wrote the Bible, not that they invented the material. And they wrote it according to God.

It wasn't made by God, it was written by various people over a long period of time. I see what you're saying, but some people do in fact think that the Bible is as you described. It really isn't for everyone and he planned it that way.

Not infinitely phenomenal- from the God that made it?

Why does it have filicidal verses such as, "If you swear at your mother and father, you shall be put to death."

Side: I know right!

it isnt the best transtion unfortunately.

a better translation is

if you dispise your mother and father, you deserve death.

actually a very interesting bible study revolving around romans 6:23

it tells us that the wage for a sin such as this is death, and jesus paid that in full on the cross

Firstly I'm an atheist. He wanted the human race to have the capability of free will, for some reason. If he designed it to be infinitely inspiring people wouldn't have the choice to believe or not- thereby denying them free will

Side: Because...

The Bible was written by man, therefore, the Bible is prone to human error.
